The following proposals have been made to reduce the rebate provided to low-income earners (under Section 87A):

  • the rebate is now reduced to Rs. 2,500 from the present limit of Rs. 5,000.

  • this rebate will be available only if the annual income is up to Rs. 3.5 lakh (earlier, Rs. 5 lakh).

Prior to this, we gave you an option to enable the new IT slabs, for the FY 2018- 2019. As there was no action taken, we have updated the application to automatically consider the new IT slab.
